This forum has really slowed up in the past day or two. Anyone else having this problem? I have a pretty good broadband system & the other forums I'm on seem as fast as usual except one which looks very similar to this one. Same hosting system? Server problem maybe? I'm not too computer-technically literate so maybe someone else has a clue.

I'm having the same trouble. You submit a post and it takes nearly a minute before it comes back to the thread. If you press submit again during that wait, it says it's too soon for you to make another post!

Me too. It seems to be ok at work (hope my boss isn't reading this - not that he'd know who I was...) but this post + quote took ages to come up - maybe it's the time of day/night??? If a lot of people are posting at the same time? But then, the time-zones are all different, since we're international and all... God knows. Hey, Sparks techies, can you help us?

We seem to agree, It's bl**dy slow & something needs to be done on the technical bods side of things.
Whats happening Admin?

Getting worse today with at least main forum page, logon is about normal, edit post normal, but posting it self slower, posting re-edit post not! Strange...

And me,
it took me 2-3 mins to log in and it's taking me 1-3 mins to make each of my posts. I hope the mods are taking down the times of these 'crashes', 'down-periods' whatever you want to call them.

I get the feeling, that it all slows down after the first post.

Often the forum-page presents itself a bit slow but not to bad, loging in is most of the time alright and so is the first post but often after that it seems to get slower.
